Steven Brust: “A masterful storyteller of contagious glee and self-deprecating badassery” —Skyler White

Still More Stevefirmations


The phone calls, emails, blog mentions, speaking invitations and requests from talk shows that resulted from my previous self-help posts have never been greater.  I see it, therefore, as nothing less than my duty to continue this work, which is as important, in its own way, as the discoveries of Franz Joseph Gall.  Therefore, here are some Stevefirmations that I hope will lead my good readers to Stevespiration of their own.

Exploring is good 2

introspection is good

family gatherings are good

I play the drum.


  1. Alternative for the last one:

    Don’t think of it as losing a grand parent, think of it as an excuse to buy a new black suit.

    Shopping is good.

  2. I love these so much! ha!

  3. Don’t think of it as Bowling.

    Think of it as an opportunity to drink beer with people you don’t like. Socializing with horrible strangers is good!

  4. These make for a very strange juxtaposition with the TRB posts!

  5. Yes. “Don’t think of it as the economy destroyed and 10% of the population dead. Think of it as an opportunity to create a socialist world. Everybody having what they need is good!

    I can almost laugh.

  6. :o) Don’t think of it as mandating poverty. Think of it as redistributing the means of production to the working classes.

    (I know; that was just the Soviet Union. The joke was that they once built a factory that produced true happiness, but the workers stole the parts and used them to brew vodka — and nobody noticed the difference.

    It’s funnier in Russian.)

    Alex: Yeah, though I think of it as kind of cleaning out my brain.
